Grand Hyatt Beijing Luxury Resort – the Answer to the Question of Where to Stay in Beijing!

There is nothing I love more after a long day exploring a city than the comfort of a luxury hotel. I have never felt the need to have a luxury hotel more than during our stay in Beijing. While we were there we had busy days hiking the Great Wall of China and had to contend with Beijing pollution but because we had the Grand Hyatt Beijing luxury resort to return to we had an absolutely fantastic time in the city. If you are considering a visit to Beijing, then the Grand Hyatt Beijing luxury resort is really the only place you should consider staying and here’s why:

The staff at Grand Hyatt Beijing

From the moment we checked into the Grand Hyatt Beijing until the moment we checked out the staff were outstanding. From dealing with our request for early check in after a long overnight flight and accommodating our late check out there was nothing that was too much trouble. The staff were particularly brilliant with Baby Wandermust making a fuss of her and providing her with a delightful stuffed toy rooster as it was the Year of the Rooster. Literally everybody we came into contact with at the Grand Hyatt Beijing went out of their way to ensure we were having an outstanding stay. Commendation must go to general manager Gerald who really runs a tight ship and ensures every guest has a grand stay.

The rooms at Grand Hyatt Beijing

One of the reasons we chose to stay at the Grand Hyatt Beijing was because of the generous sized room. We were upgraded to a suite with a spectacular view of the fountains below. The double aspect windows meant the room was bright and airy and there was plenty of space for Baby Wandermust to run around.

The main benefit of this suite though was having a separate living to bedroom area. As any family traveller will tell you having this separate space is an essential when traveling in hotels with little ones, and the Grand Hyatt Beijing got the suite perfectly apportioned.

The bathroom was also particularly suited to traveling families with large shower and a bath that was similar to die for.

Since having our little one, one of the most important things in looking for a hotel is having great amenities such as a pool. We love letting our little one blow off steam in a pool after a long day of sightseeing however not all city hotel pools are created equal. One member of the Grand Hyatt Beijing staff told us they thought the pool was the best in China, and I think this would be difficult to dispute. In fact I would go as far as to say it is one oof the finest city hotel swimming pools I have ever seen. One of the issues I find with many city hotel pools is they can feel more corporate or business traveller focussed, which isn’t what you want when traveling with littles. The pool at the Grand Hyatt Beijing however has a more resort feel, complete with bird and frog song, tropical vegetation, grottos and waterfalls. How many city hotels can you honestly call a luxury resort? Not many but to me the Grand Hyatt Beijing is a luxury resort with central city location. It is the perfect place for families to unwind in the city whether the  weather is bad, you are jet lagged or have children to keep entertained the pool at the Grand Hyatt Beijing provides the  perfect solution.

Why the Grand Hyatt Beijing is where to stay in Beijing! 

But perhaps the number one reason we booked in at the Grand Hyatt Beijing was because of its’ location. Not only is the Grand Hyatt Beijing walking distance from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, but it is also adjacent to The Malls at Oriental Plaza. This proved a godsend for us during the worst of Beijing pollution. The mall is full of a variety of high end shops but also a variety of both Western and Eastern eateries.

It is also easy to get the Great Wall of China with a private tour company from the Grand Hyatt Beijing!

So if you want to know where to stay in Beijing and for a Beijing Hotels Near Forbidden City then the Grand Hyatt luxury resort is the answer!

The restaurants at Grand Hyatt Beijing

If you want to eat in the hotel, the restaurant has a great variety of restaurants. The buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day and included Western and Eastern delights as well as live cooking stations. The perfect place to start the day!

However the best restaurant has to be the fabulous Made in China which is home, in my opinion, to the best Peking duck in Beijing. It is a must for anyone staying in the hotel and those who aren’t. (Check back soon for a full review of Made in China).

In conclusion – Grand Hyatt Beijing Luxury Resort

Beijing was a city that I really loved but don’t really think I have scratched the surface of it. Having travelled to China, there are now more Chinese sites on our bucket list!

    Looks like an absolute gem of a place to stay. My kids would love that pool! We haven’t been to China yet but I can totally see a nice luxury hotel being so important to escape from the chaos and pollution. Will keep this in mind!

    Oh I love the Hyatt. Our friend works for them and they are very good to their staff. They can travel to different Hyatts and have a certain number of days in other places. So essentially they almost get free travel around the world accept for the flight. I love companies like that. The Beijing Hyatt looks sweet.

    Wow! It looks like a beautiful place to stay! As a family of five we struggle to find hotels that can accommodate us all and usually opt for self catering but I’d prefer a hotel stay in somewhere like Beijing. I’d love to visit the Great Wall of China, so if (when!) I tick it off my bucket list I’ll definitely look at this hotel as an option of where to stay.

    Having a bit of luxury to enjoy after a days hardcore sightseeing makes travel with little ones all the more easier. This place looks absolutely wonderful! What a treat!

    My husband does a lot of business in Beijing, and I have often toyed with the idea of going with him on a trip. This has just made my mind up, and I know where I will be staying! 😀 The Grand Hyatt looks incredible!!

    This sounds such a great place to stay – I love that pool (my daughter would be in heaven) and the location and service sounds ideal. After walking the Great Wall (especially the hills bits!) a bit of luxury is definitely in order.

    Oh my, that pool! This really does look like a blissful haven from all Beijing’s hustle and bustle. Lovely to have a bit of birdsong in the middle of the hectic city!

  11. March 5, 2018 / 9:06 pm

    What an amazing place to stay.. and that pool! I have never been to China myself and how much would I love to take the kids?!

  12. March 11, 2018 / 1:45 pm

    YES to the separate rooms!!! It is astounding how many hotels haven’t realized the benefit this has for family travel, but now I know where we’ll stay in Beijing with our kids! Love the giant windows, too.

  13. March 15, 2018 / 9:25 pm

    The pool looks so appealing. Especially when exploring a big city, it’s nice to have a comfortable place for downtime.

  14. March 19, 2018 / 4:20 am

    I haven’t been to Bejing, but it’s on my list 🙂 Now I have a good idea of the best place to stay when I do 🙂 Thanx!

    This looks like a pretty cool spot to stay in Beijing. There are so many luxury hotels in that city but I do like the look of this one, especially the pool! Winter is my favorite time of year in Beijing.

  16. March 22, 2018 / 12:19 pm

    What a stunning view from your suite. The hotel does look like it has everything you’d ever need if you were visiting Beijing. Glad baby wandermust got space to roam too!

  17. March 29, 2018 / 1:49 pm

    What I love best about Grand Hyatt Beijing are the rooms, how spacious and the floor to ceiling windows are amazing. The bathroom looks a bit small but that’s alright. The pool looks pretty awesome too, is it indoors?

  18. March 31, 2018 / 5:40 am

    That pool looks amazing and so do the rooms! I totally agree – when you come back to your hotel room after a long day in a foreign city there is nothing better than having a place where you can comfortably relax and with great amenities. Thanks for linking up with #farawayfiles

    The rooms look absolutely lovely and THAT pool is where I would love to hang out! China is a fascinating place to visit – and Beijing is a lot of fun!

  20. April 1, 2018 / 10:55 am

    The place looks amazing! The room is so lovely and the pool – OMG! I am not sure if I would actually go out and explore Beijing if I’d stay there…Although I would probably still enjoy it after an exhausting day exploring.

  21. April 2, 2018 / 5:36 pm

    What a beautiful hotel and strategically located to boot. We haven’t yet visited Beijing but will certainly consider this when we do. And we will take you up on your recommendation for Peking duck!

  22. April 4, 2018 / 3:24 pm

    Separate rooms with wee ones in tow is key for everyone’s sanity. Even with teenagers in tow! Looks like the Grant Hyatt Beijing was a perfect base for you guys. Thanks for sharing with #FarawayFiles
